The nearest I've got so far in thinking about it is something like the
case where you are reading from an external table. There, however, you'd
normally grab 'up to' some token (tab, space, ',', ...), then split up
the input with dedicated code. I think that, like verbatim input, the
idea looks a bit too specialised for coverage by xparse.
